HTC Desire 728 stars in real-life pictures: mid-range specs and dual front-facing speakers probably in tow

Last month, we heard about a new HTC device in the making - the HTC Desire 728. It hit TENAA, which gave away its specs and exterior design, also hinting that the phone would probably become official soon. Well, it hasn't been announced yet, but it just popped up in a handful of real-life pics, giving us a full view of its exterior.

From the looks of it, the front frame of the HTC Desire 728 will sport smaller top and bottom bezels than the majority of HTC handsets of late, which makes the device feel a smidgen shorter than HTC devices of late. Allegedly, the device is still equipped with dual front-facing BoomSound speakers, which is a welcome addition. 

Specs-wise, the HTC Desire 728 will sport predominantly mid-range specs, namely a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 chipset, some 2GB of RAM, 16GB of native storage, a microSD card slot, 5MP front-facing and a 13MP rear camera, as well as a 2,800mAh juicer at the rear. The phone will be running Android 5.1 with HTC Sense 7 UI. 

From the looks of it, the Desire 728 will most probably be a dual-SIM device. The whole shebang will have dimensions of 157.9 × 77.8 × 7.87 mm and will tip the scales at 150gr. Judging from all we know so far, the Desire 728 will most likely be a China-exclusive phone, but it gives away a few hints about the design changes that might overspan to the company's upcoming phones.

Finally HTC knows how to make a phone again, the only drawback is Mediatek.

I would definitely buy this if it had a 4.7 - 5 inch screen.

What is driving the HTC's desire to release a plethora of Desire and One M9 versions? I doubt the companies ability to sustain at the repute level of Moto, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi by the time April next year to launch a good One M10 flagship. Most probably they would fall below those grade and end up killing themselves. Sammy does the same folly of too many versions, but at least they keep their sales figures decent with the best repute among flagship phones.

Great to see some variation in design.

Finally it looks like HTC's design is headed in the right direction.

I hate when manufacturers put their logo on the front of the phone.

Meizu M2 Note = same specs, but bigger battery, FHD screen, lower price. So f**k this another middlespec HTC crap.

bigger battery for bigger resolution, in the end they'll probably have the same autonomy. Personally I like Sense a lot more than Flyme OS, not to mention the system version is newer on the HTC device + the front facing stereo speakers and in my opinion, a better design which is subjective. They didn't include the price btw, how much?

Also it looks like a cheap ripoff of Sony Z3

Good design, good specs and contained price, looks like a new way to go and I like it :) yes the M2 Note is cheaper but I don't like that UI at all x_x and $30 it's not so much for dual front facing stereo speakers and a better design imo :)
